Second Life Technical Requirements
Students taking an online UTPA Second Life course must meet these COMPUTER REQUIREMENTS and HARDWARE in order to successfully participate in a Second Life classroom.
Some relatively inexpensive (under $20) headsets are available at retail stores like Best Buy, Circuit City, Wal-Mart, etc.
Your headset may also be color coded and look similar to the ones shown below:
If your headset does not have color coded plugs you can usually identify which plug is for what by the logo on the end of the plug. The microphone can be identified by the following logo and plugs into the pink jack behind your computer. The headphones can be identified with the following logo and plug into the green jack behind your computer.
Phone headsets have been found not to work in Second Life!
Testing Your Headset:
Once you have made sure your headset is plugged in correctly you are ready to run a test on your headphones and microphone.
